In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a pro-life law passed by the Texas state legislature would be struck down because the benefits of the law were not worth impeding access to abortion. Now, Texas abortionists and pro-abortion lobbying groups are beginning an attempt to get that ruling applied to older laws. A new […]


Results from Gallup’s annual Values and Beliefs poll released this week reveal that the majority of Americans are in favor of placing legal restrictions on abortion. According to the poll, 50 percent of Americans believe abortions should only be available “under certain circumstances,” and the majority of this group believe only a “few circumstances” warrant […]


The U.S. Supreme Court recently overturned a court ruling that allowed a teenager who was in the country illegally to receive an abortion while being held in American custody. Referred to only as Jane Doe, the pregnant 17-year-old had crossed the border in Texas illegally and was apprehended. While in custody, she requested an abortion but was […]


Iowa’s recently enacted Heartbeat Bill is one of the most forceful pro-life pieces of legislation in the United States, prohibiting almost all abortions once a heartbeat can be detected. However, the future of the new law is fuzzy after a judge granted a temporary injunction halting it from being enforced. The injunction comes in response […]


Ireland is no longer a Catholic country. It’s an anti-Catholic country. How do we know? The Irish people have told us. Their overwhelming votes in favor of same-sex marriage (62 percent in 2015) and legalized abortion (66 percent last week) are as much a repudiation of the Catholic Church as they are enthusiastic endorsements of […]


CNN recently published a commentary piece titled “Open your eyes, pro-life feminists are everywhere.” Written by pro-life advocate Helen Alvaré, the piece is designed to wake people up the reality that America is full of pro-life feminists. While accurate, the commentary also paints a problematic picture of what feminism has become and how far it […]


After Senate Democrats blocked an anti-human trafficking bill last week because it lacked language that would allow abortions, pro-life groups have come together to condemn the decision and to advocate for anti-trafficking legislation. “In a stunning display of protecting abortion at all costs, the U.S. Senate failed to defend victims — women and little girls — […]


The Trump administration has announced it will move forward with a new rule that will cut some of the taxpayer funding that goes to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers under the federal Title X program. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rule will bar facilities and programs that perform abortions or refer […]


The narrative commonly pushed by Planned Parenthood is that abortions only account for a tiny percentage of the services they provide; typically, the statistic cited is 3 percent. However, a pro-Planned Parenthood op-ed recently published in The New York Times went off script and inadvertently admitted that, regardless of percentages, abortions are central to the […]


The state of Iowa just made headlines with the passage and signing of the “Heartbeat Bill,” a piece of legislation that will ban the majority of abortions within the state. “I understand that not everyone will agree with this decision,” stated Governor Kim Reynolds. “But if death is determined when a heart stops beating, then […]


Conservatives and pro-life leaders are urging President Trump to do something bold: unilaterally cut off some of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding. Even though Republicans in Congress have repeatedly failed to deliver on their promises to fully defund Planned Parenthood, pro-lifers are confident that Trump can take this step — because it’s been done before. Planned […]


A bill that seeks to erect a monument dedicated to unborn victims of abortion is currently working its way through the Tennessee state legislature.

An anti-abortion law signed by Vice President Mike Pence while he was still governor of Indiana was struck down as unconstitutional this past Thursday. Signed by then Governor Pence in March of 2016, House Enrolled Act 1337 (HEA 1337) provided several conditions that would prevent legal abortion in the state. For example, the legislation prohibits “a […]


Students from over 200 schools across the country walked out of classes on Wednesday, April 11th in an effort to stand for life and protest the legality of abortion in America.

Whether you are with President Trump or stand opposed, it is an undeniable fact that his actions have established him as one of the most pro-life presidents in recent decades. This was made clear once again during his recent proclamation of April 2018 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month: “Every child is a precious and unique […]


School walkouts have been growing in popularity as a form of protest among high schoolers. However, students have not typically organized such events to protest abortion — until now.

Thousands of people flooded to Washington, D.C., on Saturday to participate in the March for Our Lives. The protest was organized in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., and primarily advocated that the life of children is more important than the ability to own a gun.

Chicago-area Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), one of the last pro-life Democrats in Congress, staved off a fierce primary challenge from a ferociously pro-abortion candidate last night. Rep. Lipinski defeated Marie Newman — an ultra-leftist who had the backing of Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Human Rights Campaign, and Bernie Sanders — by a margin of […]


The abortion referendum in Ireland has been making headlines for weeks, and will continue to do so until it comes up for a vote in May. Pro-life Americans may have seen the headlines and wondered two things: “What is this vote all about, and should I care?” The answer to, “Should I care?” is a […]
